Yeah, sure.

Go to the Naropa Institute series and search on anything with Ginsberg or Burroughs. Want to hear Allen Ginsberg recite "Howl"? It's up here. Want to sit in on a multi-part course on writing by William S. Burroughs? It's up here.

Go to the section with old public domain recordings, and search on Bukka White, or Mississippi John Hurt ("Stack O Lee Blues"), or Cannon's Jug Stompers ("Viola Lee Blues"), or just play with the search engine explore the blues and folk recordings sections.

Want to hear a great but little known recent guitarist? Check out Ranier Ptacek...he's up here.

Also, you can hear some great historical recordings on the presidential archive. Ever hear FDR's whole speech from the day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor ("A day that will live in infamy"...how oddly apropos)? It's all up here and downloadable.

I admit I came to this site originally for the Dead, and mainly came back for the Dead, but there is a trove of recordings that are still here and very much worth checking out!
